The prominent three-striped design that features on both the Newport County 18/19 home and away kits this season is reminiscent of the iconic design that County wore during the most successful league season in the club’s history.

That triumphant campaign came 80 years ago and saw County promoted into what is now classified as the Championship – the highest tier of the English League Pyramid that the club has ever aspired into during its illustrious history.

In the 1938/39 season, County achieved promotion into the second-tier thanks to a glorious title triumph in Third Division South – taking the crown ahead of now Premier League teams such as Crystal Palace, Watford and Brighton & Hove Albion.

The kit worn in that season resembles a striking similarity to both kits featured above, with designer – and County fan – Neal Heard wanting to embrace that historic campaign within his designs for the upcoming season.

The Third Kit will be familiar to County supporters after a vote on its design was held at the Supporters Meeting in May.

It encapsulates a unique blend of the graphical movement coming back into football design – as seen by the kits from some nations in the FIFA World Cup - alongside a similar movement that was celebrated in the 1990’s.

The three original designs that were put forward for the supporter’s vote were also designed by Neal Heard – with the chosen option eventually picking up over 50% of the total vote.

Not often you get three brilliant kits all in one season, but Newport has done just that. Great efforts!
